20-Expectancy and Redemption

Exodus 1:20(NKJV) –Therefore God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied and grew very mighty.


This morning, I would like to share a story about Shiphrah and Puah, two Hebrew midwives who were blessed for denying the Egyptian Pharaoh his request.

We all know the story of how the Pharaoh threw all the baby boys into the river, but today, we need to give attention to two God-fearing women who stood their ground. Shiphrah and Puah knew that it was better to risk their lives with the Pharaoh than it was to disobey God, and because they stayed fearful of a faithful God, He blessed them.

My friends, we will face very challenging moments as we wait for the arrival of King Jesus, and we may be put in compromising positions, but keep your trust in the Lord. God will bring you through whatever scheme the enemy throws at you as you walk in obedience to His Word. Remember, the Lord has fully equipped you for the task ahead.

Heavenly Father, I now pray for You to fill me with Your faithfulness. Please let the mustard seed in me grow into a strong tree deeply rooted in You and the promises of Your Word. Fill me with the courage and boldness to keep Your commands no matter the cost. Please perfect Your love in me so that fear has no place.

Declaration: I declare in Jesus’ Mighty Name that I have committed my ways to You. Lord God, Carry out Your plan for my life! From this day forward, I will only have the fear of the Lord existing inside of me.
